    I think I read somewhere that it was another Ryan
    It's so sad reading some of the comments just because there was a like on the page (even if it was the right Ryan.. it would still be pointless to hate on BW)

    Mass Effect had as much influence on this shooting as the price of tea in China did. Whoever blames video games needs to get a grip.

    Clearly the Mass Effect loby has been influencing the laws on weapon availability for decades.

    I'm confused. The guy they thought did the shooting (but really didn't) liked mass effect so mass effect get's attacked by facebook people? First of all it's not the right guy but even if it was I don't understand how any of this has anything to do with mass effect? Like let's say he liked Starbucks coffee? Should they attack starbucks coffee? I don't understand this makes no sense. I mean hitler flew kites why aren't facebook people attacking kites?

    If you ever see a Danish long-haired dude with a full beard in his mid-20s on your news for having gone nuts and killed people somewhere, send your complaints to Edmonton.

    I just...I don't...I can't even begin to hold a thought in my head about how STUPID these people are. Holy fuck, when will society start realizing that the blame needs to be place on the PERSON and fucking media (who blows things way out of proportion), not video games/music/books? This just makes me so mad when people would rather place blame onto something else and not where it truely belongs.

    Excuse my french but . . .

    people are FUCKING retarded.

    The VT tech killer liked Call of Duty. Adolf Hitler liked Leiderhosen. Osama Bin Laden liked The Sims: House Party (okay, last two statements might be made up.) NONE OF THAT SHIT MEANS ANYTHING.

    Yes, I'm sure Jennifer Hale is the reason why the killer did what he did today.

    I dunno, If I would ever hear Her voice in my head telling me to "kill them all!" I would at least entertain a thought of obeying. One doesn't just disobey Commander Shepard's order.

    I don't think I have enough time on earth to see "Blame the video game" crowd go extinct. (I'm 26 btw.)

    Maybe its because I like Bioware, but I don't find these comments on their facebook and twitter as funny as I probably should.
    To think of it again, it is probably because I have such a low threshold of tolerance towards stupidity.

    I wonder how they felt. I mean, let's visualize this for example:

    "Yes, I made a comment on the facebook page of a video game company because they are the ones responsible for the deaths of children at an elementary school. They are responsible because the shooter liked their game on facebook."
    "I also refuse to acknowledge that there are fucked up people on this earth that might do things that are too horrible for me to comprehend. Instead of trying to look at the culprit's life to see what went wrong where to produce such a fucked up personality and reasoning for him to commit this act, I am going to blame whatever media points me at. And this comment I left on this page makes me a good, a better person due to these reasons alone. I can now sleep better because I told a big gaming company what they deserved!"

    I guess that sums up the unconscious of those who like to become the "Facebook Heroes: Modern saviors who combat evil one comment at a time! NO CAPES!"
    "So, he sent a succubus to seduce you, and lure you down to his side. And yet, first thing you do is to check her ass? Ah, kid, you've got much to learn.."

    Collectors really aren't all that hard. You can easily reduce Scion damage and armor by blowing up the sacks. Seeker swarms only hurt certain kits. I usually just ignore them because I've been playing weapon based classes like N7 Destroyer or Geth Soldier where I don't have any powers I use. Just ones I turn on and leave on.

    Praetorians aren't really that hard as long as you can move. The only thing I really hate about them are possessed exploding husks because they always sneak up on me and I kill them before I realize which ones they are. And next thing you know I got a nuke going off in my face.

    You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."

    Video games are always the first thing to get blamed when a young person snaps and goes on a killing spree.

    My Facebook has been blowing up today though because I have a lot of friends in Connecticut and the surrounding areas (NY, Mass, RI), since I lived there for a few years.

    Fucking gun-wielding cowards and modern day witch hunt enthusiasts. People are such sheep, I just have no words to accurately convey the amount of stupidity that mentality entails. All I feel is sympathy for the families, and anger towards our species as a whole today. So much fail on so many levels. It's good to see that the posters here have a good head on their shoulders and we did not see any of that kind of stuff here at least. At least I know there's some god damn sane people somewhere out there, although I'm starting think were vastly outnumbered more and more each day.

    On a positive note, I just ordered myself an N7 hoodie for Christmas, they actually have some in right now. They also have some Cerberus T's on sale right now too if anyone's interested.

    I like Tali's shirt better(dem hips), but Liara is Liara... so torn.

    The generalist looks outward; he looks for living principles, knowing full well that such principles change, that they develop. It is to the characteristics of change itself that the mentat-generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual. You must look at it with as few preconceptions as possible, asking yourself, "Now what is this thing doing?" -Children of Dune
